Fingal Hip Hop Challenge 2010
Fingal Heritage Network Meets
On Friday 7th May last, the Fingal Heritage Network held its first ever Cultural Night in the Man O’War Pub. The Network brings together Historical and Heritage Societies from throughout Fingal, to provide them with a coherent voice and to build a sense of unity between them. The evening of song, storytelling and music was a great success, with over one hundred people in attendance and members themselves providing the entertainment. On the night, Mayor of Fingal, Councillor Ciaran Byrne launched the Fingal Heritage Network Brochure 2010 which includes information about the different heritage societies and the Network. Councillor David O’Connor was MC for the event.

Blakestown Community School provided the winning team at this year’s Fingal Hip Hop Challenge. Their team entitled “Scream” won the Challenge through a display of dance and creativity. This is the second year of the Fingal Hip Hop Challenge which took place at the Back Street Studios in Airside Swords. A number of schools from across Fingal took part in the event and these schools worked closely with the Sports Office through Fingal’s Exercise: Energise programme.
